I reworked the top painting that I did in acrylic---it needed paint texture and color. I used oil paint, as I did in the other nude, which I plan to use in our "Blue" show at the gallery. That one isn't done yet. Both images are shamelessly plagiarized from a book of photographs I bought years ago. It has a lot of very interesting pictures of the human body, including those with deformities. Not to everyone's taste, but wonderful black and white compositions using the figure. I plan on stealing more.
What am I to say about the last week or so? Life is off to the side, and not quite the sort to record in a blog, or at least not in Emma's blog. I go on without noticing much, keeping my eyes stright ahead.
